Beaver Deceiver

You might have noticed this strange contraption in Harrigan Lake. A

resident beaver had taken to damming up the culvert under the Zoo Trail, threatening to flood the trail. The "beaver deceiver" is a fence installed in the water around the mouth of the culvert. Fish and other animals are able to swim through the fence, but beavers, as clever as they might be, are unable to figure out how to dam such an unnatural shape. this simple solution allows people and beavers to share the park without incident.

Help protect our bats!

White nose syndrome is a bat-killing fungal disease that was accidentally introduced to North America and has killed over 5.7 million bats. It spread into New Brunswick in 2011, killing nearly all bats at hibernation sites, including those in Rockwood Park. You can help by staying out of our caves, especially in winter when bats may be hibernating. For more information, visit WhiteNoseSyndroe.org .
